Publ DISIGMA (2019)

This book presents the basic theory of Econometrics with examples, solved exercises and econometric problems to be solved in each chapter. Its purpose is initially to help the reader to understand the basic concepts and assumptions needed before modeling and testing economic theories. Then to methodically use the appropriate econometric methods to detect the existence of any problems in the various research needs. Finally, to solve these problems in order to evaluate and propose the appropriate policies and to enable the realization of reliable forecasts. As Econometrics is based on the synthesis of Economics, Mathematics and Statistics, the theoretical foundation is made by understanding the necessary background of knowledge of Statistics and Mathematics. This basic knowledge is necessary for the correct and complete learning of the basic principles that govern Econometrics.

With examples, case studies, and exercises, this book consists of fourteen chapters and is structured in three parts. The first part consists of three chapters. The first two chapters present the introductory concepts and terminology as well as the background of the quantitative methods that are considered necessary in the effort to understand the topics that will be analyzed. The third chapter presents the principles of Economic Theory and how they enter the environment creating the field of Economics, Natural Resources and Environment. The second part consists of seven chapters which provide the theoretical foundation of Economic Natural Resources and Environment by analyzing in detail, the interactions of the Environment with the Economy and Society, as well as the role of Sustainable Development. In the context of this analysis, the methodological outline and the special methods of economic valuation of environmental goods are examined in order to determine the optimal level of environmental protection. These topics are also accompanied by a presentation, analysis and comparison of economic and administrative tools for environmental policy. Having created the necessary theoretical background, the third part and the last four chapters present the modern dimension of environmental problems and analyze their aspects and how they can be addressed through effective management.**Characteristics:**
